Bellevue Big Picture School is currently accepting applications for incoming 6th-12th graders for September 2019. Big Picture is committed to serving students throughout the District admitting approximately 75 students in each of the 6th-12th grades. Admission spots are allocated equally to the four school attendance zones (25% each from East, West, South, and North) and consideration is given to free and reduced priced lunch status and gender.

Bellevue Big Picture School is a secondary (6th-12th grade) school-of-choice. In partnership with the nationally recognized Big Picture Learning Network, five guiding principles provide the schools foundation and framework: personalization, adult-world connection, common intellectual mission, supportive partnerships, and shared leadership and responsibility. The school is uniquely structured to educate, support, and guide students from middle school through high school graduation, building bridges across the grades that lead to college success. Big Picture School is a close-knit community that fosters academic relationships, personalized experiences and inclusion for all students. Big Picture students are independent, driven and self-motivated learners. They are eager to explore potential career fields through internships and are excited to discover their true passion.


Enrollment is open now through February 1, 2019. All applications must be submitted online by 4:30 pm February 1st, 2019. A lottery will then be conducted for all sixth grade applicants. Results of the sixth grade lottery will be sent in March 2019.
